Disney Announces Cassian Andor Star Wars Live-Action Series

Star Wars Film Rogue One to Get Prequel Series at Disney's Streaming Service; Diego Luna to Reprise Role Star Wars TV series with Diego Luna as his Rogue One character in the works

Actor Diego Luna has agreed to star in a new TV show for Disney's upcoming streaming network that will be a prequel to "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story". With that said, the series will take place before the events of that film and will focus on the formative years of the Rebellion.

Beyond that, we've heard about a few other shows in the works which will most likely appear on Disney+.

In his own statement, Luna said that a TV series format would allow him to "explore this character more deeply". The streaming service was previously said to be called Disney Play, but that was a bad title and Disney+ allows the company to follow in the footsteps of ESPN+, the sports subscription streaming service which Disney already owns.

Let us know what you think in the comments.

Trump claims video distributed by White House wasn't altered
In between his calls for "respect", Trump called Acosta "unprofessional" and disparaged the reporter's intelligence. Trump also accused Acosta of treating Press Secretary Sarah Sanders in a way that was "awful".

These projects join already announced titles for Disney+ including The Mandalorian, another Star Wars series that Jon Favreau is writing and executive-producing; a series set in the world of Pixar's Monsters Inc.; as well as one based on the Disney Channel's High School Musical. No release date was announced.

Disney just announced that Diego Luna will star in a Rogue One prequel series about his character, Cassian Andor, that will premiere on Disney's streaming service, now officially called Disney+.

Before today, none of that had actually been confirmed though, but now, the Mouse House has made the official announcement. "We're planning an investor conference in April to provide more insight into our DTC strategy including a first look at Disney+ along with some of the content we're creating for it", Iger said.

The series will premiere on Disney+, Lucasfilm parent company Disney's upcoming streaming service. Like Netflix, they'll also be making their own shows and movies.

Plans for the service come as traditional television and film studios strive to adapt to a trend of people turning to streaming services such as Netflix and Amazon Prime to watch shows on-demand from internet-linked devices of their choice. Much like the Rogue One movie attempted and (in my opinion) succeeded!
